Robert Staley, Kristopher Hanc, Jonathan Bell and Tim Heneghan write the Canada chapter in Chambers Global Practice Guides. The Guides offer comparative analysis in key areas of law from top-ranked lawyers around the world.
The Canada chapter looks at shareholders' rights, shareholder activism and remedies available to shareholders. It also provides an overview of the emergence of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) investor criteria. Rob, Kris, Jon and Tim describe why ESG-based investing is here to stay, and why companies with a greater appreciation for both the challenges and opportunities it presents are well-positioned to respond to ESG-focused activism campaigns.Reproduced with permission from Chambers Global Practice Guides.
